loans. CARES Act emergency grants of $250 to $500 may be available for necessities due to the disruption related to the coronavirus.

Dutchess and Putnam students who currently attend high school or are home-schooled
but wish to simultaneously enroll in late-start DCC courses are considered “early admit students” and will pay a special reduced tuition rate of $60.67 per credit. High school students
from other counties in New York are charged $182 per credit.
How do I enroll in late-start classes?
If you are a current DCC student who wishes to add a class, either email the ACT Center at ACT@sunydutchess.edu or call (845) 431-8600. If you are a new student, you must apply to the College. If you are enrolling in a degree or certificate program, or will be attending full
time, please complete the matriculated application. Complete the nonmatriculated application if you are not enrolling in a program at this time and do not wish to be considered for financial aid.
